Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Best Garcia Band shows?

I tried to find a thread discussing this, with no luck.

Can you list two or three non-Dead shows with Garcia that are among your favorites? Commercial or privately traded. Legion of Mary, JGB, David & the Dorks, whoever -- anything you think really showcases Garcia's playing outside the Dead. I already have the solo albums so am looking rather for highlights from the JGB and other manifestations of his genius.

Thanks, friends.

May 7-11, 1992 with Garcia and Grisman is a terrific run at The Warfield.

I really like the acoustic 5.5.82 from the Oregon State Penitentiary with just Garcia and Kahn. I grew up in Salem, OR so this was my home base... Salem, not the pen.

Check back for my post this Wednesday and check my post last Wednesday.

My hands down favorite is:
Jerry Garcia Band
Saturday, Mar 18, 1978
Warner Theater, Washington, DC

Early Show
- Complete Show -
I Second That Emotion
They Love Each Other
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
That's What Love Will Make You Do
Love In The Afternoon
Mystery Train

Late Show
- Complete Show -
Harder They Come
Mission In The Rain
Simple Twist Of Fate
Midnight Moonlight
Gomorrah
Cats Under The Stars
I'll Be With Thee
Lonesome And A Long Way From Home
- Encore -
Palm Sunday

As a David Crosby fan I definitely recommend the David and The Dorks shows. And in that spirit I suggest the If Only I Could Remember My Outtakes and the Planet Earth Rock 'n' Roll Orchestra Outtakes. Some great jamming and playing around. These tend to make the regular rotation in my playlist.

At work lately I've had a hard time lately getting away from JGB 1976-02-21 La Paloma Theater, Encinitas, CA [ http://db.etree.org/lookup_show.php?shows_key=13236 ] Early Show.

Early Show:
I Second That Emotion
They Love Each Other
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
Who Was John
Mystery Train
Friend Of The Devil
Tore Up Over You
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
(I'm A) Road Runner

If you groove on the jazzy Legion of Mary I highly recommend 1975-02-14 [ http://db.etree.org/lookup_show.php?shows_key=4846 ], 1975-04-06 [ http://db.etree.org/lookup_show.php?shows_key=4860 ], and The Keystone shows in May and June of 1975.

A couple other favorite LOM shows which recently have been brought to bright beautiful clean sound by the MOTB folks are 1975-06-03+4 [ http://db.etree.org/lookup_show.php?shows_key=4888 : http://db.etree.org/lookup_show.php?shows_key=4889 ]

A wonderful show featuring Jerry, as well as Carlos Santana and Mickey Hart among others, is a Babatunde Olatunji & His Drums of Passion show from 1987-02-15 [ http://db.etree.org/myshows_detail.php?showid=8021829 ] which is pretty good. It has a couple ouch spots where you can see Jerry knows it's his solo and he wants to do something but can't quite manage it and Carlos jumps in with some beautifulness of his own. It's still pretty soon after getting out of the coma and trying to relearn everything all over.

Just my 2 cents worth offa the top of my head. ymmv

Yo Monte! When It ry to sign onto that page it cannot be displayed. I tried the homepage and that was available. I would love a copy of the show you recommended but it's not available at e-tree, except in surround. Is there an alternative address for that site?

hey Sug, you need to be a member to sign-in at LL. As a member, I can access all they have. My link to the LOM show at LL is to the info page. You can save the torrent file there, and read all the details. It's a nice perk for members to share w/ non-members. So you don't need to be a member to get this show. No need to sign-in to get the torrent file for this show. It's at the top, in the "torrent" field.

here is the LOM info page at LL

or, just open this torrent file in your bt client instead

I have tried every which way to get to the torrent and at every turn I am met with the same message..."Internet Explorer Cannot Display The Webpage". I get a glimpse of the page and then the kick in the balls that it cannot be diplayed. I would gladly join if I could get there.

There is a video of the Shoreline show in 90 that is super hot. [sorry I forget the Date]. Right after Brents death. Was supposed to be 3 GD shows but Jerry and Los Lobos filled in for a mammoth JGB show. Highly recommend it.

It's not the "Garcia Band", but my particular favorite is the Garcia/Howard Wales show on Jan 26 '72 - pretty much wall-to-wall jams, and the occasional freakout. Wales' brand of jazz-funk organ playing might be a bit irritating, but he really pushed Garcia's playing, and it seems to have influenced Garcia's playing with the Dead that year. (The Side Trips CD has some of their lengthy jams as well.)

The sight of the track listing from Armadillo Headquarters is thrilling me . I always loved Zappa/Beefheart Bongo Fury and armadilloes tho i've never seen one. I always loved the Dead cos they does good country. And I'm someone who cracked his head on the computer table while fixin a speaker so I could hear Hank Williams sing On Top Of Old Smoky. Peace to you all.
